NewsGush: Microsoft Utterly Fail At Music


Well done Microsoft. In an attempt to make downloading their sub par browser Internet Explorer appeal to, as far as I know, absolutely nbody, they’re giving away an exclusive along with it. Who this is targeted at I do not know. The mentally infirm? The deaf? Idiots in general?

Now, forgive me for being a cynical music know-it- all who probably only listens to unsigned, underground B sides, but Nickelback are god-fucking-awful. Look at this . That is an audience of people who have paid money to throw rocks at Chad Kroger.

Also, check out this of two Nickelback songs. Exactly the same. They are guilty of plagiarizing themselves. They are essentially distilling their own shit into more concentrated shit.

By offering a free download of what I can only assume will be an audio atrocity, Microsoft haven’t so much shot themselves in the foot, but vapourised the lower half of their body with a fucking chain gun.

    At least it will bring people in that may want to try out some “unsigned” acts?

    Hello people. May we get the RSS feed for this site fixed? It’s liked to the WWM one at the moment. Then I’d know when a post had gone up and could come and join in the fun, see? much obliged :)

    Am I only person who thinks that the singer of Nickelback is a ringer for Gabriel Batistuta?

    This may be the squarest piece of promotional flim-flammery by a music act ever. Worse even than David Byrne having part of one of his songs used as a demo for Windows Media Player.

    I have no idea what he looks like Thumper, either of them for that matter.

    Swines usually puts it up on the twatter 4*

    The link I posted was a little more than my usual self promotion as I myself am part of the microsoft download promotion.
    Oh yes.
    If I can get a few downloads thanks to the monster pop machine of Nickleback then “I’m on board”

    Ah, in which case, SH, I mean the blue RSS button top right on this website. That links to the WWM feedburner feed. Sorry, that’s my fault for not being clear.

    Aha – ok… try this for now:

    shouldn’t we be using this space to screech about NickELback and compare young Chad to a king Charles Spaniel? Or do you all SECRETLY LOVE NICKELBACK??!!!

    Incidentally, what kind of cruel and unusual parent calls their son ‘Chad’. Wot no talent?
